Movie meme – the answers




1) Image hosted by Photobucket.com
The usual suspects - Kevin Spacey rulez!

Sense and sensibility - the perfect ladies’ movie according to a friend of mine, but I love this story. And Alan Rickman is very sexy here!

Muriel’s wedding - Toni Collete is lovely in this movie, so young and beautiful – and soundtrack is amazing, ABBA all over the movie!


4)Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Peggy Sue got married - what would you do if you could turn back time, knowing all about your past? I always liked this idea, and Kathleen Turner and Nicolas Cage had some great scenes in this movie.

L.A. confidential - as penalty said Kevin Spacey is love, lol – I can watch this movie for the rest of my life and I’ll never be tired of it!


6)Image hosted by Photobucket.com
The Truman show - another movie that I can watch again and again. Jim Carrey can be pretty annoying sometimes but here he’s under control and quite perfect.

The adventures of Priscilla, the queen of desert - Favorite. Movie. Ever. I don’t have words to describe how much I love this story, guys’ makeup and outfits, soundtrack... Terence Stamp, Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce have a permanent place inside my heart just for this movie!!

Victor/Victoria - is there anybody out there who doesn’t like this movie? I doubt so. It’s that kind of story that makes you grin and feel lighter after watching it, and it’s a very good feeling sometimes.

E.T. - first movie that made me cry. I’d had watched it several times along the years and I still feel so bad when E.T. is dying!


10)Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Sleepless in Seattle - unusual love story, the lovers only really meet at the end and it’s so sweet!


11)Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Dracula - Gary Oldman works here and that should be more than enough for me. But it’s a Coppola’s movie and it makes everything even better.


12)Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Notting Hill - another love story, this time involving a movie star and an ordinary guy. But what I really liked here was ordinary guy’s friends, a bunch of people like you and me, a little bit crazy sometimes but very nice all the time.

The color purple - the book is amazing and the movie is wonderful. I cry several times every fucking time I watch it. There’s something really touching about this story, and it’s another one I’d watch forever.

Gone with the wind - again, is anybody out there who doesn’t like this story? Although sometimes I think Scarlett was a kind of Mary Sue I love this strong, powerful, selfish and stubborn woman, always ready to fight for what she wanted – and Clark Gable was absolutely irresistible here, wasn’t he? *g*

Most desired man (Der bewegte mann) – dudes, you have to see this movie! A straight guy was discovered in flagrante delicto with another girl by his girlfriend, who obviously didn’t like the entire thing. So he had to move and ended up (I’ll spare you the details) sharing an apartment with a gay guy – who obviously fell in love with him. The entire movie shows how straight guy reacts to gay universe, going to parties, dealing with gay people, etc. For some time we think he was going to take a walk on the wild side until his girlfriend came back to say she was pregnant... it has hilarious scenes, Almodóvar style (when a gay guy tries to explain to very straight men the pleasure of having a finger inside his ass, for example), I think you should like it.

penalty, I had watched this movie three times late at night at SBT. Maybe you have luck and it’ll be there again in the future.

American history X - before this movie I never really liked Edward Norton but he’s stunning here as former Nazi having to face consequences of his decisions and trying to prevent his baby brother of going through same path.




(P.S.: aaniren, probably you’d notice I didn’t included Top Gun, but that’s only because I hadn’t found any good image of it – same thing happened to The sound of music, OMG I love Julie Andrews in that movie!!!)

Is it about "Fim de Noite"? 'Cause the most films of it are just for SP people - I don't have cable TV and all. And last dawn I see this movie called "Eating Out", where a straight guy pretend to be gay just to fuck a girl. Bla, bla, bla... one of those stupid teenage flick comedies with bad acting, of course, but there is something funny about it - slangs, cliches and the whole way of talking - and I guess you, as a good faghag, will like it, haha.

Sometimes seems to be Top Gun's every 80s girl favourite movie, huh? You can find some images from the movie here: http://adorocinema.cidadeinternet.com.br/filmes/top-gun/top-gun.htm. By the way, Julie Andrews, who was singing at "Intercine" last week, is waiting for you here: http://adorocinema.cidadeinternet.com.br/filmes/novica-rebelde/novica-rebelde.htm. Hope you like it.

Thanks for the links, Kinho, I'll check them! I'd found images from both movies but they only showed Julie and Tom, and I wanted not so obvious images to this meme.
And about "Most desired man" - no, I'd seen it after "Fim de Noite", but I must be wrong. "Fim de Noite" presents TV shows, right? Anyway I remember I'd seen it at weekends, after 1 a.m., the movie is a German one but it was dubbed in English and with Portuguese subtitles. Quite bizarre, isn't it? ;o)

Totally is! And 'Fim de Noite' is around 3am, I suppose. Not into, actually. I prefer 'Cine Band Clássicos', haha. What a Grandma's conversation, huh?

The adventures of Priscilla, the queen of desert - ok, I'm ashamed to admit but - I haven't seen this one. *hides* I wanted to, for so long, but I never did. I'll have to do something about it, though. And soon.

I cry when ET dies, too. And I cry every time I see Oprah in The Color Purple. In conclusion, TV makes me cry A LOT.

Most desired man (Der bewegte mann) – ... I think you should like it.
I should definitely like it :D But the girlfriend?? Pregnant?! Damn. I guess you can't always have a happy ending (I'm SO going to hell for this remark..) ;D

As for Top Gun, it was 'mysteriously' missing from both our lists - which is such. a. shame. LOL Ah, 80s Tom Cruise, 'Playing With The Boys' and 'Great Balls Of Fire' (pun intended?)...SOOO long before Katie... :P


PS I got your card - and right on time: yesterday, when my nightmare (called Urbanism) finally ended - (I passed) - giving me some of the time and freedom back...to play around the Internet, of course ;) ) ET!! I love it SO much and love you for thinking of me *hugs*

EXCUSE ME?!?!?!?!?! You never watched it?! I can't believe, you'd watched every gay movie out there, how could you have passed this one? Ok, it's not openly gay, there's not m/m action (only at beating scene, but don't worry, nobody dies, lol). Anyway now that you have lots of free time go watch it NOW! (yes, I'm bossy sometimes... *g*)

It gets worse: they marry, he cheats on her again, the gay friend (who she hates) ends up driving her to hospital where he manages to witness baby's birth. Problem is: people thinks he's her husband, and he hates blood... Hilarious. In the end she's pretty pissed up with straight guy again, and he and his gay friend discuss the chances of his baby boy being gay too... You'll love this movie!

I looked for volley scene images but found none. Too sad!

And I had just got your package... dude, DVDs are love, lol - but my damn DVD player isn't playing QaF DVD, shit! It has happened before, I'll have to read damn manual again to discover what's wrong with it. Anyway I loved Oz pink ones, totally unusual color to associate with that show, lol

I know. I know. I'm ashamed. :P But I've promised to do something about it-- and I will! ;D
BTW, speaking of transvestites-- have you seen To Wong Foo, thanks for everything, Julie Newmar (starring Patrick Swayze (yeah, yeah..LOL), Wesley Snipes (awesomeness!) and John Leguizamo (= NATURAL!))?? I love that film, it's hilarious!

That's what I call 'perfect timing' ;D Those pink DVDs were an 'accident', really - I didn't have time to make the usual 'stickers' -- which is probably for the better, too, since those sometimes make it difficult (or even impossible!) for players to read DVDs (if the sticker un-sticks or air gets in between..); removing them is a nightmare, too -- basically, you have to burn everything again, because if you're anal like me about such things, you can't look at the damn ugly STICKY thing.
Anyway. The problem with the QAF DVD might be the formats that said DVD contains - .wma, .avi, .mov, .rm - so if your player doesn't support those, you'll have to use your computer for viewing that material :/

Yeah, I saw Wong Foo - Swayze annoyed me a lot, I think he had such a perfect heart, he was such a lady... lol
But Snipes and Leguizamo were amazing, specially Snipes with all that macho attitude he normally has at other movies, he was a great drag, *g*
Anyway I still prefer Priscilla - better story, characters (you'll love Guy Pearce using his bunny ears, lol) and soundtrack!

Exactly!! Snipes was THE best - I mean, he had me at the opening scene when he was applying powder and batting those EXTRA long eyelashes - I really didn't think that 'Blade' could pull it off, but he was perfect(ly funny).
Swayze was actually the least convincing of all. But it was fun nonetheless.
